Thai language social media accounts no longer being updated…
These sites might be stagnant but there’s still fantastic information to be had. Sometimes sites perk back up after a haitus so I’ll try and catch them at it when I can (if you notice before I do, please contact me).
Bangkok Post, Learning From News (last post: undetermined)
Terry Fredrickson and Jon Fernquest write articles for Thais learning English but their posts are peppered with valuable vocabulary for the Thai language learner as well. There used to be a Thai section but it’s no longer being updated.

Facebook: learn2speakthai | YouTube: learn2speakthai | twitter: @learn2speakthai
The blog hasn’t been updated but the website is solid. Mia Rongsiaw heads a team of Skype teachers. IMO Mia hosts the best version of the Maanii series online, Learn Thai with Maanii Books (includes audio and pdf files).
